I actually really like the idea of having this against the side of the house instead of out in the middle of our backyard or in a corner - it's just large enough to store what we need and then some. by Aniky

A penny saved.. is a tile floor - I knew even before we bought our house that I wanted to put a penny tile floor in somewhere.  As in real pennies.  We had seen a floor like this at the Standard Grill in New York and thought it was really pretty and on a small scale wouldn't be hard to fabricate.  So I saved a bunch of pennies, made a template, bought some mesh backing for mosaic tiles, glue that could hold metal and started making sheets of by tanya

If we ever have to change our dining room table, I like a bleached look like this... Also the white glassed door kitchen cabinet... Nice feeling to this room, even though it may be a bit overwhelmingly white? Well, we would have wooden floors at least. by HeavenV

Leaping Frog Tatting Shuttle    Sometime back we fitted new wooden blinds in our house and we ended up with slats left over. Since we often like to “re-purpose” things we find, Dave made some lightweight tatting shuttles out of the extra blinds.    This shuttle is 3 1/4 inches long by 1 1/8 inch wide and 1/8 inch thick, and has been adorned with a "Leaping Frog" using pyrography (burn etching). by Penny Charman

Mini Pizza Meatloaves - freezer meals.  These look great to have on hand or a quick meal or snack.  Fill the muffin tins almost full.  We like ours with pizza sauce on the side.  I've used different kinds of cheese on top.  These are always a hit in our house. by graciela

It’s also used internally as an antimicrobial to help the body resist pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Having anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, astringent, and vulnerary properties, calendula is also a good herb for the skin. In this post, we have gathered together some of our favorite recipes and remedies using this herb for all sorts of uses. by rae

The "one chore per day" house cleaning list. "This is so doable and covers everything!" First, this is not "one" chore per day - some days it is two or three. Also, these "15-20 minute" chores are things like "Go through each room and put everything away" or deep cleaning everything in all of your bathrooms in under 30 minutes, or doing a week's worth of laundry (washed, dried, folded, and put away) in one day.

Chicken Swing! It's a great cheep<-(haha) way to keep birds from boredom! We put one up in each of our two coops after a tree fell down. We used some of the limbs and some rope to make a chicken swing. They really seem to like it. Sometimes, my bantam cochin Jill will sit up in it and go to sleep! by lara

Colored Ice Eggs!  Got some left over dye after you finish up with your eggs? How about making some ice eggs? This week we had fun learning about ice, temperature and colors when we made colored ice balloons, or “ice eggs” as little creators like to call them. Don’t forget to put dye in the balloon before you fill them.  Works with food coloring or natural dyes in our Natural Easter Egg Dye Kit. by batjas88
